St. Benedict School

At St Benedict School, we nurture every child's individual gifts with a rigorous and challenging educational experience.
With its low faculty/student ratio and neighborhood emphasis, St. Benedict is a safe, family-oriented and community-involved school.
St. Benedict students academic achievement significantly exceed that of comparable public schools, at a much more affordable cost than comparable private schools.
As a K-8 school, students avoid the jarring transition to middle school from a typical K-5 program; St. Benedict School truly prepares students for success in high school and beyond.
We emphasize community both within our school and with the outside world.
Within the school, each student belongs to a "family," each of which includes a student from each grade.
Students are involved with an array of social service activities, and have international contacts as well.
